I’ve got mail

I’ve got mail.

The mail carrier brought it today.

Not just catalogs, flyers with pizza coupons and bulk rate circulars. Real mail, not just junk, addressed to me.

What a happy surprise.

Charlie (3) and his mom mailed his preschool photo AND the self-portrait he drew inside the card. ❤️ Thanks Charlie. (and Laura)

Not a Worry Stone

But a smooth meditation Spalted Maple (piece of highly polished wood) Rubbing it is soothing. I didn’t know the word spalted before today

Created by artisan David Manos- pictured below – who makes gorgeous hardwood buttons and shawl pins, too….you can see his wife Madelyn, peeking! The Wood Rasp Shop at the Indie Knit & Spin Marketplace at the Ace Hotel today.

The Man Behind Me Laughed as I Photographed This

Last Friday I was invited to Grandparents’ Day at Michael’s school. I had such a wonderful time seeing his classrooms and meeting his teachers- but before that –

Coffee and doughnuts were served.

I had to look twice at the bottom left doughnut and yes, I pulled out my phone to document what I saw. The man behind me was laughing. I said, “I’m a blogger. I’ve never seen one before.”

Yes, it’s a Bacon Maple Doughnut! I didn’t sample it, just photographed it.
